Joost on his involvement in Triall: “I am convinced that blockchain technology will be one of the default, under-the-hood, implementations that drive the day-to-day operations of clinical research professionals in 5-10 years. At Triall, we are now laying the groundwork for this technology to be readily integrable in real-world clinical trials globally, and that makes me extremely proud. I want to thank the blockchain pioneers before us, that have provided us with the tools and infrastructure to realize the long-sought-after real-world use cases that we are developing with Triall. “
